Chisenji

We are fostering, possibly fostering-to-adopt this cute little lady. Per ACS, her owners passed away and their children surrendered her, did not want to take on the responsibility. They gave VERY little information on her, not even a name, (we are calling her Daisy for now) and she doesn't seem like she got very good care. She is super friendly and very loving, however, she is covered in ticks and fleas, which I just gave her a good shampooing and a dose of frontline. She didn't mind her bath too terribly. Anyhoo…She was listed as a Chihuahua/Basenji mix, but I think she looks Corgi. Thoughts?

Sorry for the poor quality pictures, I used my phone.

I might see some basenji in there but first thought was more basenji corgi mix….the picture were her white stripe on her head continues to the back makes me see the basenji...so glad to see you are fostering and considering adopting her. Your family has been through a lt and its clear to see you deserve a dog!

I could see Basenji/Corgi as well. Either way she is simply adorable 🙂

She is not liking the crate and we have a yodeler!

She is totally super cute!

Are you thinking of adopting her yet??? …hope so

Oh WOW what a cutie. LOL and if yodeling, that sure helps validate the basenji part. I also see corgi not chihuahua. PLEASE video her yodeling! 🙂

So far all but one family member love her. My youngest, Lee doesn't like her at all, will stay in his room if she's out and about. He doesn't like her long nails, she also has dew claws. I think she may have scratched him accidentally and it totally turned him off. Still deciding whether we are going to adopt, we have found that she is possessive of toys and growls if we try to take them. The hubster and I are working on it and don't allow the kids to play fetch with her unless the object is on the floor and not near her mouth. We discovers she is also food aggressive, another thing we are monitoring and working in. It's only day two and no decisions will be made for a while. She is my little shadow, following everywhere I go, even whining if I leave the room or don't go along on walks. She is a very good listener and is eager to please. She did better than expected in her crate and that's when we confirmed basenji. She whined and barked for about two minutes then the barks turned into full-on yodels which melted my heart. She calmed down after about five minutes and slept all night. She's such a good girl. We found out she has a name, she was in ACS before under different owners and she was called Brittany, which she responds to. She is possessive of me. When my hubby kissed me goodby, she growled and barked at him, but I think she doesn't like is ACU's and boots! We shall see!

Sounds like she does have lots of issues, however considering her background (condition you got her in) not a surprise. And as she becomes comfortable you will most likely find other problems….. Not sure this is the best fit....

And we knew when fostering, it would be a possibility. There was expressed interest in an adopter not long after I brought her hope, so however it works out, I don't doubt she will find her home.
